Featured Posts from Last Week’s Submissions

SLT Featured Post Badge

We really enjoy reading your posts each week! Featured post bloggers, please grab the badge above and display it on your site! Link it to one of the host blogs’ posts for the specific week that you were featured.

Here are our picks from last week’s submissions. Thanks to all who participated — it is always hard to choose!

1. Infused Olive Oils and Vinegars by the intentional minimalist. A great collection of recipes for infusing your own olive oil and vinegar.

2. Fighting Blight: A Fermented Recipe by Food Farm Health. Fermenting foods adds good bacteria to our bodies but it’s beneficial effects became even more obvious when this blogger put it on her blight – ridden tomato plants.

3. Chai Tea Concentrate by The Elliott Homestead. Shaye made her own chai tea concentrate for around $2, saving $5 over the market’s $7 price tag — and hers probably serves more. Plus, we love that you can avoid boiling your precious raw milk by combining the concentrate with cold raw milk and blending it with ice for a cool, summer iced chai.

4. Getting the Children Involved – Homemade Perfume by Jo’s Health Corner. Great recipes to making your own homemade perfume using essential oils for stimulant, relaxing or antiseptic effects.

5. Meet Our First Dairy Sheep, Dorothy! by Butter Believer. This author shares in her excitement as she adds a sheep for milk to her homestead.

Share Your Simple Lives Thursday Post

Bloggers, make a “Simple Lives Thursday” post on your own blog, then come back here to add your post to the linky box below the featured posts. If you don’t have a picture, feel free to download the Simple Lives Thursday banner (at top of post) and upload it using the script’s prompts (it is easy). Your post will appear on all five blogs!

Non-bloggers, feel free to add a comment here with any ideas or thoughts about simple living.

These are two simple guidelines for participation:

1. If linking real, traditional and simple recipes, please make sure all ingredients used are whole — such as whole grains, vegetables, legumes, meats, even sugar. In order to keep the integrity of “nourishing” food, we will delete any recipes that utilize processed, boxed foods. We are definitely not going to be ingredient policemen! But, please note that this is a hop hosted by advocates of the real, local and sustainable food movements.

2. Please link your posts back to one of the hosting blogs. This is a common blog hop courtesy. This link helps build the Simple Lives Thursday community by sending your readers to all of the other participants’ posts. We all end up sharing and learning from each other.

What will you share this week? We all look forward to your submissions!
